    cojs middleware for Redux.

    redux-co is a drop-in replacement for redux-thunk (and indeed passes its test suite). It's meant to support async actions through yieldables as well as plain thunk functions.

    $ npm i --save-dev redux-co
    

    Motivation

    Redux Thunk middleware allows you to write action creators that return a function instead of an action. The thunk can be used to delay the dispatch of an action, or to dispatch only if a certain condition is met. The inner function receives the store methods dispatch and getState() as parameters.

    Usage

    Then, to enable redux-co, use applyMiddleware():

    // store.js
     
    import { createStore, applyMiddleware } from 'redux'
    import coMiddleware from 'redux-co'
    import rootReducer from './reducers/index'
     
    // create a store that has redux-co middleware enabled
    const createStoreWithMiddleware = applyMiddleware(
      coMiddleware
    )(createStore)
     
    export default createStoreWithMiddleware(rootReducer)
     
    // actions.js
     
    import { createAction } from 'redux-actions'
    import github from 'axios'
     
    export const types = {
      USER_PROFILE_REQUEST: 'USER_PROFILE_REQUEST',
      USER_PROFILE_RECEIVE: 'USER_PROFILE_RECEIVE',
      SOMETHING_ELSE: 'SOMETHING_ELSE'
    }
     
    export const actions = {
      fetchUserProfile: createFetchUserProfileAction,
      requestUserProfile: createAction(types.USER_PROFILE_REQUEST),
      receiveUserProfile: createAction(types.USER_PROFILE_RECEIVE),
      somethingElse: createAction(types.SOMETHING_ELSE)
    }
     
    // we can dispatch multiple actions in the right order with
    // sublime flow control. We are yielding a promise returned
    // by our github api wrapper.
    function createFetchUserProfileAction (username) {
      return function * (dispatch) {
        dispatch(actions.requestUserProfile(username))
     
        try {
          let data = yield github.getUserProfile(username)
          dispatch(actions.receiveUserProfile(data))
        } catch (err) {
          dispatch(actions.receiveUserProfile(err))
        }
     
        dispatch(actions.somethingElse())
      }
    }
     
    // we still support thunks!
    function createFetchUserProfileAction (username) {
      return function (dispatch) {
        dispatch(actions.requestUserProfile(username))
     
        return github.getUserProfile(username)
          .then((data) => dispatch(actions.receiveUserProfile(data)))
          .catch((err) => dispatch(actions.receiveUserProfile(err)))
          .then(() => dispatch(actions.somethingElse()))
      }
    }
     

    The above examples achieve the same result using both thunks and generators, but being generators backed up by cojs allows us to yield all the things!

    Composition

    Any return value from the inner function will be available as the return value of dispatch itself. This is convenient for orchestrating an asynchronous control flow with thunk action creators dispatching each other and returning Promises to wait for each other’s completion.

    How to contribute

    This project follows the awesome Vincent Driessen branching model.

    • You must add a new feature on its own branch
    • You must contribute to hot-fixing, directly into the master branch (and pull-request to it)

    This project uses standardjs to enforce a consistent code style. Your contribution must be pass standard validation.

    The test suite is written on top of mochajs/mocha. Use the tests to check if your contribution breaks some part of the library and be sure to add new tests for each new feature.

    $ npm test
